C’mon, you know you want to! This has been fun. Feel free to disagree with me in comments. The photos are from the 2012 film, images from RottenTomatoes.com.
Read my review of Catching Fire here, and of The Hunger Games here. I’ve gotten distracted from writing my review of Mockingjay, probably because I was disappointed by what I saw as the structure failing the story, but I need to get back to it.

That wasn’t what I was getting at. Instead, my idea was, “Name a scent that would suit this character’s personality.”
Katniss Everdeen Tough call, very tough… not girly, not shy, not too refined. Nothing bosomy or flirty, so no florientals. Earthy, green, leather?

Or gorgeous/strong Balmain Jolie Madame, in vintage parfum, with its green notes, violets, and leather.
Peeta Mellark Everybody’s favorite Boy with the Bread (yeah, I’m on Team Peeta, wanna make something of it??) would possibly wear Bois Farine, for its flour note. However, I’m picking Un Bois Vanille, for its sheer friendliness and amiable reliability. Strong, sweet, calm, unassuming, never lets you down: that’s my boy. Continue reading →
